Someone else explained that this was the first time they were listening to the singer, and they were very impressed.
‘WAIT IT’S MY FIRST TIME LISTENING TO SAM SMITH OMG HE’S [They’re] GOOD WOAH #ARIAs.’
Sam’s sensational performance comes after they discussed coming out as non-binary, revealing that they weren’t prepared for the amount of ‘ridicule and bullying’ they faced.
They spoke very candidly about the decision and also changing pronouns to they/them last September in an interview with CBS This Morning.
As well as reflecting on the reaction, Sam revealed that gender had been ‘nothing but traumatising and challenging’ in their life.
Speaking about the decision, Sam said: ‘I honestly, I can’t express to enough people how much courage it’s taken. I wasn’t prepared for the amount of ridicule. And bullying, really, that I’ve experienced.
‘I mean, honestly, the comments and the types of things that I have to answer and walk through every day is very, very intense.’
